Benjamin Franklin stated it best when he said: Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

Government today is completely and totally reactionary and utilizes each and every opportunity to grab another handful of our rights, liberties and freedoms. These are all rights that we will never see again. Each liberty that we allow to be taken away today will be just one more freedom that children born tomorrow will never know.
No right nor freedom has ever been provided or given by any government. All of our liberties were endowed to us by our Creator at birth. Governments only possess the ability to limit, restrict or completely absolve us of our God-given rights. The freedoms that we enjoy today and the rights we allow to slip away were preserved, protected and passed down by the bloodshed of our ancestors.
